Winters Barns – A Summer Wedding – Chris Deller Photography
I’m so over this rain. And Corona. I want Summer and warmth and light! Back at the tail end of August I had the pleasure of shooting Kerri & Lewis Wedding photography at the amazing Winters Barns down near to Canterbury. I do love working here, especially when the warm summer sun beats down.
These guys had booked me after seeing me at one their pals weddings the year before and they sold me on their beautiful, simple rustic wedding theme! I knew Kerri was going to look amazing and well Lewis would scrub up too!!
What a Venue!
Down at Winters Barns they can accommodate any weather but obviously you pray for summer wedding sunshine so the ceremony can be outside and the beautiful grounds can be explored to the maximum. August 30th was a Scorcher with big fluffy white clouds and just the right amount of breeze. The staff at Winters Barns are always superb. The wedding coordinator Lizzie is a dream to work with, the right blend of fun and business to get the wedding working in a perfect manner. The bar and waiting staff also deserve a mention for their “nothing is to much trouble” attitude.
The Bridal Party
All of the Bride squad looked STUNNING! The guys looked spot on in their dark three piece suits and pink accent ties. And a special mention to having an equal number of each that really helps with my OCD in pictures!!
Then there was Kerri, as you can see from the pictures she looked absolutely drop dead gorgeous! Lewis complementing her perfectly in his suit and light waist coat.
The ceremony was outside with just the right ammount of readings, love and warmth. As the sun shone down the love between Kerri & Lewis was evident to everyone lucky enough to be there.
And Beyond. . .
Drinks and canapés were served on the lawn before the dreaded group shots (done in record time as they had given me a concise list. . . please do this!!). The wedding breakfast was fantastic with the best mans speeches a particular highlight. I had to remind myself to take pictures as I was laughing so much!
Bridal Portraits and the First Dance
Kerri and Lewis came for a walk with me to get some pictures in the setting summer sun. I cant confirm if anyone broke into a field <cough> to get some shots amongst the freshly cut corn. Not me. Nope.
But the results were gorgeous. The sun bouncing off the golden stubble lit the couple perfectly. Then it was back to the party. A quick cake cutting and onto the first dance. And then chaos! Absolute chaos (these photo’s are best left on peoples Facebook and Insta!)
All in all the perfect day. The family and friends of Kerri made me incredibly welcome. The staff and Lizzie at Winters Barns were amazing.
As summer wedding photography goes it couldn’t have been any better! Thanks for having me!
